Anza-Borrego Foundation Presents California Field Atlas Author Obi Kaufmann for March 3 Events

Includes First Annual Boots Ball, Book Signing, Dinner

Anza-Borrego Foundation, the nonprofit partner of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, welcomes wilderness poet, artist and advocate Obi Kaufmann for a day of activities tied to his new book, “The California Field Atlas.”

A love letter to the natural world of the Golden State, Kaufmann’s “The California Field Atlas” has been on several bestseller lists and its second printing is sold out. Kaufmann has been visiting Anza-Borrego Desert State Park his whole life, especially enjoying the desert palms, elephant trees and bighorn sheep. He is a huge supporter of the Anza-Borrego Foundation.

All event proceeds support Anza-Borrego Foundation and its mission to preserve and protect Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, including providing financial support for Park programs, acquiring land for conservation in and around the Park, educating the public about the Park’s resources and supporting research relevant to the region – for more than 50 years.
